    Certainly no worse looking than the Cameron Adam Scott is using.

    He's actually using a directed force putter this week at the Masters.

    Honestly, I like it. I picked up a Futura 6M and I’ve gained respect for the higher MOI options.

    They make them for a reason. The stroke needs to be egregious to not at least roll somewhat on line. You may not make it, but you should be around the hole when you miss.

    Bought one today need cut down a little more, it putts very nice, I like the plain face on it, tired cleaning grooves on most other putters. It’s actually feeling lighter than you’d think.! It’s slightly bigger than Scotty phantom X12

    Don't get me started on Ping making tour-only putters these days, having built up their reputation for years in Karsten's time by never even paying pros to use their putters, all of which were available to everyone, regardless of their level of play.  

    What is your point?

    My point, quite simply, is that from the 60s to the 00s, Ping was a company which, as far as I know, made available all its putter designs to everyone from club golfers to tour pros (who could add weight and customise their putter through WRX/the famous Jim Wells).  This was in line with Karsten's original philosophy of Ping making innovative, well-engineered clubs for everyone.

    It's a matter of regret, in my opinion, that in the last couple of years they have strayed from this, copied other companies, and now have ranges for the mass market, and a range exclusively for pros.  There have been three PLD releases so far: an Anser head with very limited customization, a Ketsch with 2 camo finishes, and a Ketsch mid with a copper sole.  Meanwhile, an array of PLD models are being played on tour which are not, it seems, going to be made available to the plebs who actually buy Ping's product. That will makes some consumers feel excluded.  Others may disagree, but this is how I feel about it as a long-time Ping fan.

    Ping will make you almost whatever you want, regardless of who you are. Most companies don’t do that. I could literally call up Morton’s tomorrow and get an order started for a custom milled My Day.

    I agree. Our rep says there are very few putters they won't make for a customer. Certain PLD putters were made FOR a pro. If you have money, they'll make it, but be prepared to pay. They're not going to make a $300 putter for you.

    I have to have mine extended to 36 inches. This is a BIG putter; not insanely big, but big.

    Went to a real green today, hit about 30 putts, great lag, and lines up well, And I mean everything being equal it’s just what makes you feel comfortable I don’t feel comfortable with my arms folded to hold the putter. When I say my putter is 33 inches it’s like oh my God a kids putter. Phil Mickelson is like 2 inches taller than me, I’ve met Phill couple times his putter is like 29 31 inches.

    .......well that happened all day yesterday 😂, I got the new blueprint irons, along with Bruzer, finally got irons tuned to me, 16 GIR, 40 putts. I’ve found that for me the shorter I make the putter, the better it is on short putts, so I need my guys to take another 1/2” of, maybe inch. For me a big MOI putter easier to handle shorter. Have fun.

    Really? Could you get something even close to one of these? Look at the faces, for example - not Vault 2.0 or Sigma G milling...

    Well you can always add it back and the guys at Continental just make the club like new whenever they do modifications for me I mean I had that cut three times but you can only bend it so much that’s the problem with that one he was able to bend it but there was a point where if he cut it and not the right lie you’re going to have to leave it but it came out just right I’d say I’m probably right around 33 inches. I putted about an hour yesterday with it and definitely being shorter was easier on shorter putts, when it was longer it seemed a little unsteady so it’s good now Great lagging putter no matter what the length

    I just picked one up today. It was an impulse buy, so we will see how it goes.

  • PT1911PT1911 Members Posts: 1,116 ✭✭✭✭✭✭

    Just received mine today. I think it looks good! We will see how it rolls tonight!
    One other thing though, did anyone else's come with a COA in the box? Last year, when I bought a PLD3 limited edition, it came with a COA inside the PLD box.

    Bought the Bruzer at a local shop and just came with the putter and headcover. Cut down to just under 34" and regripped with PP58. Ready to roll. Like the PLD3 better.

    How are people liking the size? And how stable is it?

    I'm interested in adding a PLD putter to my collection one day the Bruzer could be one but might prefer a touch smaller.

    Just got mine today. 33 inches straight from my Ping rep. I rolled one a month ago and loved it. Like the way it frames the hole. I don't think it is overly large and it is very stable. I'll know more in the coming weeks as I get some time in with it.

    I rolled one at a local store this weekend and didn't think it felt all that good but I made every putt I looked at with it. Incredibly stable and easy to roll. I really wish it had a standard plumbers neck instead of the slant neck. For whatever reason I just don't like the way the slanted neck looks.

  • EmerichEmerich Members Posts: 120 ✭✭✭

    I can't play with a putter that large, and I don't want to have to wrestle with that thing in my bag when trying to pull any other club.
